Felixstowe College Reunion to Mark 20 Years Since the School Closed

Nearly 200 ex-pupils and staff gathered back in Felixstowe for the first big reunion since the school closed its doors in 1994. People flew from literally all over the world for the occasion; there were girls there from the Far East, Bermuda, Dubai, France, Spain and the USA.

During the afternoon, the owners of many of the old boarding houses and the Chapel kindly opened their doors to show the ex-pupils around what are now beautiful private homes and businesses. An evening reception was held at the Orwell Hotel where there was a large amount of memorabilia on display including mannequins dressed in the school uniform and Games kit! A special cake was cut by Mrs Dawn Cuthbertson (nee Guniness), who was headmistress from 1979-1988 and a resounding rendition of the school was sung, with the song writer in attendance (David Savill, the chaplain at the school until 1990).

It was such a success that another one is being planned for 10 years time!
